A 19-year-old Ivorian footballer from the Norwegian club HamKam was found dead in his apartment on Wednesday morning.

Ivorian footballer Archange Defrignan Mondouo has been confirmed dead by his Norwegian club HamKam in a heart-wrenching announcement on Wednesday.

At just 19 years of age, the central midfielder was found lifeless in his room with recent reports highlighting his struggle with heart issues.

"It is with great sadness that we have received the news that Archange Defringan Mondou 'Akillas' has died. Our warmest thoughts go out to his family and relatives," conveyed the club in an official statement. 

The loss has plunged the team and its management into mourning, marking a "very difficult day for all concerned," according to HamKam Football's general manager, Bent Svele.

Akillas, who joined the ranks of the Norwegian club in April 2023, had shown immense promise on the field, primarily occupying the central midfielder position.

 However, his burgeoning career faced an unexpected halt due to concerning heart problems. 

The situation took a dire turn in September 2023 when he collapsed during a training session, an incident that led to an exhaustive series of specialist examinations and continuous monitoring by the medical staff.

Despite the club's and medical team's vigilant efforts to manage his condition, Akillas's sudden demise has left many questions unanswered, with the cause of death still being investigated. 

HamKam has respectfully announced that no further comments will be made at this time, allowing space for his family, friends, and team members to grieve in privacy.
